So I am one of those brides that tried on at least 200 dresses, eventually I grew tired that nothing Wowed me I liked almost everything but loved nothing. Not trying to sound conceited but I looked good in everything and I dress up A LOT so I was looking for that TV OMG this is it feeling and never got it. I did like this dress A LOT though so I ordered it and it came in today. My wedding is at a Library in Boca Raton on an outdoor lakeside patio so I wanted something elegant but sexy and simple. I am normally a really sensual dresser and a little trendy. But I wanted my wedding dress to be timeless so the pictures would look good forever. Now I feel like my dress may be too simple because I wanted to stay away from trends. What do you think? The seamstress is adding more layers underneath to give it the model picture look. Keep in mind it was fresh out the box, wrinkled and the 3 layers that make the bottom bigger were not separated yet at all. I got there like 20 min, b4 closing.

I have always loved that Casablanca dress! It is so elegant and it looks great on you! I think you may have a different reaction when you bling it up with your hair and makeup done and your accesories on. I don’t have any advice, but I think it’s gorgeous.

I think it’s really stunning! You look exactly how you described – elegant, sexy and timeless!
Do you think your accessories will dress it up more?

You looks amazing in this dress!! Just as good as model. You have a killer body and the simplicity of the gown really accentuates that. It’s simply stunning!

I think it’s gorgeous, and will be even better once the slight modifications you spoke about happen.
I agree with the PP that hair and accessories are often what make a dress a total “wow”.

Well I LOVE the dress and I love it even more on you. It’s great as it is, but I’m sure the added layers will give it some more oomph. The bracelet and the necklace look very pretty with it too, are those your going to be jewelry on your wedding day? If not, you could always add flashier accessories to jazz it even more.

Girl, that dress looks fabulous on you!!! I think you made a great choice, it’s very classic and elegant. And I don’t think it’s too simple at all. To me it has that wow factor, without going over the top with a lot of extra stuff going on. It really is gorgeous!

I actually like it better on you than on the model.

Sooooo purdy! 😀 My god you look amazing in that dress! It fits you perfectly!- I also love the subtle yet elegant bling; it emphasises your tiny waist, and the sweetheart neckline really flatters you too. Keep that dress! 😀
